Question about Pride Mobility Products Pride Mobility Celebrity X 3 Wheel Electric Scooter
While riding my scooter the back wheels lock and come to a sudden stop its fully charged with 2 new battries fitted reently rewired when wiring the speedometer was bypassed so can only do 1 speed
The Hand Control has probably bent in from use. ( Where she Pushes the throttle Control )
Grab a hold of it and bend it out towards you slightly
The part about the indicator going down when she moves and back up when she stops is normal

Hi. Sounds like a loose connection, either on the battery terminals, or on the battery lead connectors.
When your machine suddenly stops, does the battery gauge also turn off?
Can also be caused by a worn or stuck motor brush.
If none of these ideas help, can you give us a better description of what goes wrong?
Good luck. Neil.

Based on your description you have a bad throttle potentiometer or speed potentiometer. Remove the covers of the front console and check the resistance throughout the range of both pots at the connector. It should be even throughout the range with no dead spots. The newer CTE throttle pot is more reliable than the older model Celebrity scooter with the 5K ohm potentiometer. I usually replace the throttle and speed pots as a pair since they are connected electrically in the console.
Load test the batteries while you are driving. Using your voltmeter that is still connected under the rear cover while you are driving, check to see if you get a voltage drop of more than 1 volt. Static testing of batteries only tells you that there is a full charge. It does not give you an indication of how the batteries perform under load.
If you have clean brushes, you can still have a large amount of conductive brush dust in the motor and armature. Blow out the dust with compressed air. Check the motor and brake with you meter. The motor coil resistance should be less than 1.5 ohms and the brake should read between 40 to 60 ohms. Hope this helps.

Problem seems to be in the brake wiring or micro switch on the brake itself that is causing your problem check the brake and wiring to make sure you have good connections and check if you can see that the micro switch is working correctly. try leaving the switch on and moving the freewheel lever to see if it will reset without turning the switch off if it doesn't and you have to turn it on then off then there is a problem in the brake circuitry signal to the console and you will have to replace the brake/microswitch assembly. Hope this helps
